Jarvis Cocker, Robyn Hitchcock, Martha Wainwright, KT Tunstall, Marcus Brigstocke, Ryuichi Sakomoto tackle climate change.

In 2008 45 scientists and artists joined together on a Cape Farewell expedition to Disko Bay, Greenland to witness the physical threat of climate change. Following them on their voyage deeper into the High Arctic we see them attempt to tackle a collective response to this global issue and their subsequent performances at Latitude Festival and recording of new material. Supported by Take One Action, Scotland's global action cinema project.

Please note that there is a short screening preceding the feature. 

Screening with: Constancy (Ivån Torres Hdez /Finland /2011 /7 min)
